Smart Home Camera Controller: isn't responding

I'm trying to create a Smart Home skill using the Camera Controller. The discovery goes fine and I see the logs on CloudWatch. However, the requests to stream is never sent to the app instead Alexa reports an error with the skill not responding immediately. The request never makes it to the logs either. Here's the code snippet: https://github.com/alexa-doorman/alexa-smarthome/blob/master/sample_lambda/python/lambda.py

When I sometimes do see the logs, and verify that the RTSP URI is provided by logging it and testing it with VLC, the response from Alexa is the same of "isn't responding"

Wow I feel dumb, it seems the datetime has to be in the format '%Y-%m-%dT%H:%M:%S.%fZ' or else it will fail :|
